Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court John Roberts reads rules which will govern the impeachment trial of President Trump in the U.S. Senate.
Justice John Roberts: The Senate will convene as a court of impeachment. If there is no objection, the journal of proceedings of the trial are approved today. I’m aware of one senator present who was unable to take the impeachment oath last Thursday, will he please rise, raise his right hand, and be sworn?
Do you solemnly swear that in all things and pertaining to the trial of the impeachment of Donald John Trump, President of the United States, now pending, you will do impartial justice according to the constitution and laws, so help you God?
Senator: I do
Justice Roberts: The secretary will note the name of the Senator who has just taken the oath, and will present the oath book to him for signature
